Matheny did one of my biggest pet peeves last night man. Walking a guy to make the bases loaded with an average pitcher who sometimes struggles to throw strikes. Puts way too much pressure on the pitcher. And Salas is that, and he walked the guy on 4 pitches.
Unless it was 2nd and 3rd with 1 out and you're trying to set up the double play, I never really understood intentionally walking the bases loaded. There probably are exceptions though.
So the Indians are in first and get a nice solid 36.5 percent of their stadium full on a nightly basis. Quality.
****** pay roll and a mediocre team with 1 playoff appearance through 10 years will do that. They will start selling out if they keep it up and it will happen on a nightly basis.
